I had used the velcro strap seal savers from White Bros before they discontinued them. They work great!

I bought the long tusk one's that cover the entire fork tube. You have to take off the tire to put them on but they give great protection.

I have a set of these and I will be going with the Shock Sox next time from the other site linked to in this thread. The Fork Skins work well, but in my opinion are a little flimsy and hard to install. Just my 2c, for what it is worth.

The Tusk ones work great. I have had them since February. They are easy to clean, just roll them over when you are washing your bike and give them a quick spray. They only cost me 10 bucks too. Can't beat that.

The Tusk ones work great

Which ones, short or long? And what size (mm) for WR450?

The long ones cover the outer fork tube all the up to the lower triple clamp to protect against roost. I run the short ones myself (like the look better). You will want the largest size. Your inner fork tubes are either 46mm or 48mm.

Buy the long one, cut it in half, and you'll have two pairs of short ones. That's a great deal for $12.

I bought my Seal Savers on Ebay for about $12, and they work great. It is nice to be able to take them off when washing the bike.... alot of fine dust will collect at the edges, so that gets washed too.
I got these after a $300+ dealer rebuild :thumbsup:

You get hosed by the dealer when it comes to changing fork seals. I bought a Tusk seal driver for $39 and it has been worth it's weight in gold. Now my buddies pay me to change their seals.:thumbsup:

Seal savers will damage the plating on you fork legs over time if they are not keeped VERY clean.The dirt embeeded into the saver will act like fine sandpaper.Most of the time seal leaks can be fixed by the film trick.Savers work by keeping dirt from the seals.The film trick works by removing that dirt.When a seal leaks it is almost always a small peice of dirt that holds the lip of the seal off the tube and allows oil to bypass.Remove the dirt and fix the leak WITHOUT relacing the seal.:thumbsup:
